FLEX Funding & Supervision

At the RHSRNbc, medical students have the opportunity to join ongoing projects with the network as their year 1, 2 or 4 FLEX project. Funds are also available to support students working on other projects that involve rural and remote health activities and require travel to these communities.

What is FLEX?

FLEX (Flexible Enhanced Learning) is a series of courses that offer medical undergraduate students unique opportunities to pursue a variety of scholarly activities in Year 1, 2, and 4 of the renewed curriculum. In FLEX, students develop and pursue activities that allow them to explore individual learning interests in greater depth.

FLEX activities can take place in academic settings or communities anywhere in British Columbia, Canada or the world.
